After three consecutive defeats, Melbourne City have managed to turn their fortunes around by going unbeaten in their last three league outings, having won twice and drawn once. This weekend they play host to an Adelaide United side who have won once and drawn twice in their last three A-League fixtures. The fact that City are in slightly better form coupled with home advantage should see them have the edge come Sunday.

April 2016 saw Melbourne City make the trip to Adelaide and it is one that they will not want to be reminded of. That’s due to the fact that they were soundly beaten by United with the home side cruising to victory courtesy of a 4-1 scoreline which saw Pablo Sanchez score a late brace.
